Times of darkness and radical change have the potential to move us toward new ways of being human.  We may long for guidance in how to proceed with our lives and turn to others for wise counsel or try to “figure it out,” yet forget that Life is the teacher.

In this gathering we’ll listen to Life’s subtle promptings, to ourselves and to each other by reaching deep into our genetic heritage for a more visceral wisdom that comes from living the life of connection—what I call under-standing.

This is an opportunity to completely shift your perspective: by being part of a group that has become One; by listening to one another as One; and by feeling into your own life and calling as part of the intricate web of relationships in our living world. The intent of An Unbroken Intimacy with Life is to support this kind of alignment.

True freedom, spontaneity, and creativity are the gifts of living from such an orientation, moment by moment, in our daily lives. The retreat offers a gentle process for those who long to trust themselves and Life more fully. You will also receive in advance some suggestions for personal inquiry to help you prepare for our time together.

About Anne

Teilhard de Chardin’s biographer Ursula King cites Anne as one of four people who have given us new metaphors and ideas about love for our Time.After a 30-year inquiry into the interior and group development required for fundamental cultural transformation, she wrote Awakening the Energies of Love: Discovering Fire for the Second Time.

Brian Swimme calls it “an experiential pathway into that necessary transformation.” The book is a prerequisite for the Anglican Church of Australia’s 4-year program in Spiritual Direction. An adult educator and former organizational consultant, she is also the author of The Dancing Animal Woman: A Celebration of Life.

Anne mentors groups and individuals who seek a mature spirituality. Her retreats are inclusive of all perspectives and are an opportunity to experience the kind of love that unites differences.

One participant wrote appreciatively to her: “You can be sure your work was an encounter with what is deepest within everyone there and they heard something of what they have been longing to hear.” www.annehillman.net
